As the nights are rolling in, head torches became the new fashion at Goodgym Brent

15 runnners ran a total of 6km to Harlesden Town Gardens to help with the task of removing cardboard slips from coffee cups that were used for a B3 event the previous week

After a quick warm up and welcoming two first timers Laura and Jenny we set off to the task . It was approximately three km to the task but with a slightly longer route than planned as we had to run around the Fairground in Roundwood park. Philip was waiting at the task to meet us to let us (and lock us) in. He had saved us a huge stash of cardboard cups for us. To the untrained eye they may have looked like they could be composted but he explained that was a plastic lining that had to be removed. So we set to work peeling the card from the cups , definitely a first for Goodgym Brent. We set to work peeling the plastic and avoiding the coffee spilling out of some of them. In not too long at all we had the cardboard removed, ready for composting. Philip kindly gave us a tour of the gardens and offered us some rosemary to take home. In no time at all it was time to run back, and we finished off with a cool down before heading home (via the pub). Get well soon Pritesh! We all hope to see you next week
